Welcome Carolyn Cole

Annie Meyer Gallery is pleased to announce that Portland artist Carolyn Cole has joined the gallery.  Join us for her opening receptions July 5th and 6th from 5-8pm.

As an artist with work shown in five galleries nationwide, Cole's paintings are regarded by peers and collectors alike as a quintessential example of providing access to abstract and contemporary art. Seasoned and novice collectors appreciate Cole's versatile, vibrant paintings.

Cole is recognized for application of color and her distinctive artistic process of incorporating multiple layers of acrylic paint, pencil, charcoal and collaged papers. One signature trait includes use of handwritten letters, pages from old books, and recycled envelopes; these become collage elements for texture beneath painted surfaces.

Cole states, "I love to create surfaces that are visually intriguing and mysterious, with expressive colors and shapes. By building layers of paint and collage, the paintings become infused with a cultural history, at the same time allowing the viewer to create their own personal history.

"Red Bathing Suit" 20x19 - acrylic on paper

Join us to celebrate Char's new body of work titled " Red Bathing Suit Series - float, sink, or swim".

About the work Char writes: “This series of paintings came to life after my mother’s death in early 2015. Packing up her apartment I began going through old photo albums and looking at familiar black and white childhood photos in a different way.

In an age when we all have multiple photos viewed instantly and documenting every moment in our lives, this was different. The moment was captured, you got what you got- whether the subject was smiling or 1/2 out of the frame. I began working with these images that evoked the complexities of family relationships, not just visions of a happier, nostalgic past. Layering paint, I worked with colors and textures that set the mood of a different time. I wanted to create paintings that show beauty, fun, some mystery and just a touch of irony”.
